The Kansas City Royals have moved — not actually, but legally.

The Royals changed their legal home from Missouri to Delaware last fall during the process of the team’s sale from David Glass to a group headed by John Sherman.

The switch was mentioned in court papers in a suit by minor leaguers against Major League Baseball.

Kansas City Royals Baseball Corp., a Missouri corporation, became Kansas City Royals Baseball Club Inc., a Delaware corporation, on Nov 19.

That corporation became Kansas City Royals Baseball Club LLC, a Delaware limited liability company.
